If you believe in being curious, love solving problems and know in your gut that sometimes it's more art than science then you should start your career with us.
Which is why we believe in recruiting for diversity. We don't just recruit the best legal graduates. If you can show us excellence we don't mind if you haven't taken a traditional route to law.
Our culture is about making it possible; for our people our clients and our communities. We believe in giving our people a voice. We lead the way with new solutions and services. We support our clients whether they're facing disruption or creating it. We leverage our expertise and influence to make a difference. And we work together as one firm internationally.
The ability to connect the dots and leap to inspired solutions can't be underestimated. We believe it’s this pioneering approach that unlocks a world of opportunity. It's what our clients value and it helps us to be the firm we want to be.
To get there, we’re committed to treating everyone with kindness and respect; to creating an environment where everyone feels empowered and supported to succeed, knowing they can make a meaningful contribution to our firm, whoever they are.
So, we work tirelessly to build a culture that makes it possible – possible for our people, our clients and our communities. We stay curious and work in truly international teams. And, by enabling our people to get the best out of themselves, we give our clients access to a whole world of expertise.
Sustainability is a core strategic initiative for us – it’s vital to our people, our clients and our planet. We embrace the step change needed to transform our business; not just minimising our environmental impact but, as a global citizen, making a positive contribution towards a more sustainable future.
We believe that technology can be a force for good. Our work with some of the world’s most cutting-edge companies gives us firsthand insight into the innovative approaches that create a new blueprint for sustainable living, so where possible we apply this to our own firm too.
We routinely manage our buildings responsibly, consider the impact of business travel, reduce waste and consumption, and recycle wherever we can. More importantly, we commit to business decisions that support our sustainability pledges alongside our long-term economic growth strategies.
For us pro bono isn’t an add on. We are passionate about making a positive difference to people’s lives, and giving back to the communities we work within.
We give pro bono our time, consideration, and full expertise. Because our culture is focused on making it possible. Possible for our people, our clients, and our communities. And we believe we can open up possibilities for individuals and organisations in need, by contributing the time, legal expertise, skills, and resources needed to progress their cause.
It’s all the more satisfying when we can work together, with our clients and other key stakeholders to foster and develop collaborative opportunities that have a greater positive social impact as a result.
We’re an outward-looking firm. We're interested in the world, current issues, and emerging trends; and we work with great clients doing great things. Things that have a real impact on the way the world does business, and how we all live. So, it's not surprising that we also want to have a positive influence by supporting our local communities.
Our people regularly dedicate time through volunteering and fundraising, collaborating with “Fundación Pro-Bono” and with the program “Conoce tus Leyes” to contribute our legal expertise to progress their cause.
